Article: “Expert Panel Urges Aggressive Research Initiative to Study Health Effects of Low-Dose Radiation”

 

Dr. Stephenson reports that the US government should fund a robust, multiyear research program to study how low-dose radiation affects health risks for cancer and other diseases, according to a new consensus study report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM). [JAMA Health Forum. June 2022]

Article: “Automatic reagent handling and assay processing of human biospecimens inside a transportation container for a medical disaster response against radiation”

 

Drs. David Brenner, Frederic Zenhausern, and colleagues report on the application of a micro-controlled, centrifugal, microfluidic system inside a shipping container that can add reagent to an actively cultured human blood sample during transportation to ensure a rapid biodosimetry with a cytokinesis-block micronucleus (CBMN) assay.
